Formerly Thomas's Choral Society
Battersea Choral Society has become one of London’s most established choirs, over the past eighteen years.
Brought together by a love of singing, this friendly choir welcomes members who, in turn, approach rehearsals and concerts with
enthusiasm and commitment.
We rehearse every Tuesday evening in Battersea under the
expert direction of Sam Evans, and present three major concerts each year
in the beautiful setting of Holy Trinity Sloane Square.
Our summer concert, on 24 June, showed how the choir sang without their scores for the first time! A resounding success and thoroughly enjoyed by audience and choir members. We were incredibly lucky to be joined by such talented soloists and orchestra members.
Rehearsals have resumed for our next concert to be held on
Saturday 10 March 2018 at Holy Trinity Sloane Square,
Sloane Street, London SW1X 9BZ

On Saturday 10 March members of Battersea Choral Society, with world-class soloists and renowned early music ensemble Musica Poetica, will perform the epic masterpiece by JS Bach - St John Passion.
The Passion according to St John was first heard on Good Friday, 7 April 1724, as part of the service of Vespers in the church of St Nicholas in Leipzig.
We shall look forward to performing Bach’s musical equivalent of the Passion Play in the heart of Lent, leading to Eastertide; a time for reflection upon the Crucifixion before the celebration of the Resurrection.
